    Wrap removal - second installment

    That looks like a Ludwig shell. I've never got that involved with vintage kits. I remember my dismay when I ordered a new Tom in 1979 for my mid 50,s WFL kit in white marine pearl. The new drum had a different pattern and had a blueish tint that was very noticeable until you put colored lights...

    Tama Granstar Tom memory locks.

    I spoke to a Tama dealer in Lansing Michigan today who has been selling Tamas for 30 years and we found out something interesting. Apparently tama Tom L mounts were originally hex and then at some point they made them knurled. Mine are the latter which leads me to believe that the one I found is...

    One of my drums getting ready to remove hardware and wrap. These look like a cream color until you remove the lugs and see that they were bright white.

    Tama Granstar Tom memory locks.

    Yeah. But I found one with a Tom clamp. Going to buy it then if I have trouble finding another I'll just have one machined locally. Shouldn't be to hard. Hell I could probably mill one out of plastic.

    Tama Granstar Tom memory locks.

    Thanks for the encouragement. I think I will pull the trigger on that clamp. At least I will have 1 until I can secure a second. If I had been more diligent when I found this set I would have had the drum shop owner locate some for me at that time. Thanks

    Help! Doing a long over do restoration on a 1987 Granstar set and missing the Tom memory locks. These seem to be the perverbial needle in the hay stack from what I've been told so far. Not finding anything on Reverb or ebay. Anyone know of a Tama dealer thats been around since the 80,s that may...

    Tama Granstar Tom memory locks.

    Yes the four hole Tom mount. I have only found 1 that is with a Tom bracket ( the type that clamps to a cymbal stand) on an obscure site that I just found today. New in the box. Don't know if 30 bucks plus shipping warrants that purchase. Although I could use that clamp for a cow Bell, but then...
